    This was the scene when Occupy Oakland protesters attempted to break into multiple buildings on Jan. 28.

    Occupy Oakland protesters plan to take to the streets again Saturday, exactly one week after a rally turned chaotic leading to hundreds of protesters being arrested and a mass break-in of City Hall.

    Members of the group plan on marching the several blocks from City Hall to Oakland police headquarters to protest what they claim is abuse at the hands of officers during last Saturday's protest.

    That protest peaked with rock and bottle throwing from demonstrators and volleys of tear gas were fired in response from the police.

    More than 400 people were arrested and at least three officers and one protester were injured.

    Meanwhile, Oakland Mayor Jean Quan says that vandalism and activities related to Occupy Oakland has cost the city $5 million since the first protest tent popped up outside City Hall in October.
